Events of Interest in August

Events of Interest in August

Today begins the traditional August holidays for many in Washington. Although the Augustine panel on the future of human space flight is in full bore, and the Senate is in session for one week more, the schedule of activiities is pretty slow for the next four weeks. Following are those meetings that have been announced to date. If any others come along of particular note, an update will be issued. For now, the only notable August events are two half-day public meetings of the Augustine panel, and meetings of hard-working National Research Council committees.
